Verdict

Colour Blue showed real battling qualities when making most to beat three rivals over a mile at Killarney and she's been left on the same mark. A line through Tested, who beat her and Slipper Orchid into second place recently, gives her the edge over the latter though there's little between them and Elusive Time is held by them both. Bubbly Bellini has won eleven races though not for a year and he's probably still a couple of pounds high. HIDDEN OASIS was conceding 16lb to Intensical when beating him almost 3l at Naas in October. Both have continued to improve and the latter does have a fitness advantage but David Wachman's charge looked a very bright prospect that day and his only subsequent start was on very heavy ground in France so he can make a successful reappearance.
